Is it bad manners to drink eggnog before sunset? I was wondering that when it actually came up in conversation at the hotel bar tonight. I met a German businessman who said he worked the financing deal for Cape Fear. I will not be checking his work. Constance and his wife got into a big hoo-ha conversation so I was forced to fill the time. His hands were noticably older than his face. I'm not sure what that means, but I imagine the three cups of cocoa he drinks a day might have some side effects. I have made a mental note for Manolo to look into cocoa more closely. I told the German I was writing a movie about the guy who invented golf. At first I was lying of course, but by the time I described the scene where his son gets a hole-in-one I was telling the truth. Funny how blurry that line is, Diary.
